UKRAINE — The chaplains’ prayer tour hit the road traveling over 30 hours and ranging 2,500 km bringing prayer relief to 9 cities! They prayed for Ukraine, our government, repented for our people. They prayed against antisemitism and national pride. The tour extended to seven cities – Kharkiv, Toretsk, Kramatorsk, Kryvyi Rih, Mykolaiv, and Odessa. It was a time of warm and hearty fellowship and powerful prayer together with the pastors, bishops, messianic rabbis, and Ukrainian soldiers from those cities.
It was a crucial trip for our nation’s people. During the trip, there were many compelling testimonies of God’s glory and protection.
Kiev Jewish Messianic Congregation (KJMC) was born shortly after first Festival of Jewish Music and Dance, organized by the mission “Hear, O Israel!” (Jonathan Bernis), which took place in Ukraine in 1994. Boris Grisenko has been the rabbi (pastor) of KJMC from the very beginning. Rabbi Boris was also the Vice Chairman of the Ukrainian Interchurch Council and holds an Honorary Doctorate in Theology from CLST (Christian Life School of Theology). KJMC has grown over the years and today numbers more than 2,000 people. The congregation is comprised of Jews and non-Jews, all of whom have accepted the Lord Yeshua ha’Mashiach (Jesus Christ).
The KJMC vision is focused largely on the revival of the Jewish people, including:
- So that every Jew would know his Messiah
- The unity in the Body of the Messiah to be restored
- To break free of non-Biblical extremes of Judaism and Christianity
- To bring about freedom from anti_semitism, indifference, and other non-Biblical attitudes as well as freedom from Humanism and occult spirituality
